The law relating to whistleblowers is complex. It is a unique area of employment law and one in which Bernard Chill & Axtell has the expertise necessary to protect employees. We represent people throughout the country who have spoken out about wrongdoing by their employer.
We act with conviction and discretion and believe this is important and worthwhile work. We do not want people harmed by the acts of unscrupulous organisations. Nor do we wish to see the environment damaged because a company is putting profits first.
To succeed, claims by whistleblowers must withstand a defence often backed up by the considerable resources of large companies. In addition, the Employment Tribunal will apply intense scrutiny to your claim. As a result, many whistleblowing cases do not succeed, leaving the employee exposed and vulnerable.
We very rarely fail in a case of this nature, many of our cases have attracted widespread attention from the national media.
Whistleblowing Protection In Southampton
Our team is led by Paul Grant, who has acted in several high-profile cases involving the NHS and other national bodies.
We believe in bringing employers to account and seeking compensation for those people who are brave enough to stand up and speak out.
Public and private sector employees who report wrongdoing that they believe, in good faith, to be true may be protected from dismissal or other forms of detrimental treatment such as victimisation, harassment and bullying by employers.
If you believe you have been victimised by speaking out or you are considering the disclosure of sensitive information about your employer, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible to establish whether the information is "protected" under the legislation.
